Re: GPS vs Rangefinderi was on the same boat as you, i didnt want to spend the $400 for the gps.
but i did, and i am happy i did.
pros: updates itself, has pretty much all golf courses, very accurate
cons: price, but the offset is that it last forever, not like our golf clubs that we want a new one every 1-3 years.
i love that it gives me the yardage to the front & back of all the sand traps, water hazards,
front, middle, back of the green
i cant live with out this thing.
i forgot it on my computer on morning, and i got to the course and realized i forgot it at home. I couldn't go back home it wasn't that close to me. so i played the rest of the day without it, man was I miserable. i cant live without that little gps. it tells me everything i need, and it actually saves me lots of strokes because of its pin point accuaracy. worked at every course i went to public, semi private, private, and crappy courses that should go out of business.
best equipment in my bag for sure
glad i can help
